(4.2 stars; 61 reviews)

Science fiction (abbreviated SF or sci-fi with varying punctuation and case) is a broad genre of fiction that often involves sociological and technical speculations based on current or future science or technology. This is the second volume of reader-selected collection of short stories originally published between 1941 and 1963, that entered the US public domain when their copyright was not renewed. Introduction by Cori Samuel with input from Wikipedia.

Note: This collection originally included a tenth story, The Burning Bridge by Poul Anderson. That recording was removed in November 2011 because of a copyright claim.

Bruce Bell is hands down the best reader you'll ever hear. Will follow more of his work for the sake of his reading alone. Also, awesome story.
